Color and Contemplate – Haitian Population

Dress 5

Approximately 10 million people live in the nation of Haiti. With an 80% poverty rate, that means about 8 million Haitians are living below the poverty line. That’s a lot of need.

I love that Mission to Haiti is providing kids with the message of the gospel and a quality education. It’s one thing to donate a bunch of clothes or even food. It’s a much bigger thing to give the gift of hope and of education. An education can be the difference between abject poverty and the ability to put food on the table. And the hope found in Jesus makes an everlasting difference.
